ACT zoo lodge opens this week

Jamala Wildlife Lodge, the new development in Canberra from National Zoo and Aquarium owners Richard and Maureen Tindale, opens on Friday19 December.

The new African-themed resort that allows guests to get up close and personal with the animals offers 20 luxury rooms scattered across the zoo, each with their own animal encounter and decorated with items handpicked by the Tindales on their annual trips to Africa.

Richard Tindale explains, “The idea here is to try and get people immersed in the world of wildlife in a luxurious and fairly unique setting. We found the closer we could get, the more we could get them to interact with animals, the bigger impact it had on their outlook as to what they could do with wildlife.”

The centre of the facilities, Ushaka Lodge, sits just above the public aquarium in what was previously the Tindale’s house, and they now live in a new house on the other side of the property.

Accommodation starts at $400 and ranges up to $850 per person based on twin share, and includes afternoon tea, three-course dinner, drinks, overnight accommodation, breakfast, an early morning zoo tour to feed the animals.
